AXEL TUANZEBE is reportedly set for another loan move away from Manchester United.

The centre-back fell down the pecking order at Old Trafford last season, in which he made 18 appearances for the Red Devils.

And according to the Manchester Evening News, a number of teams have expressed an interest in signing the 23-year-old.

Premier League and foreign clubs are said to be keen on snapping up the former England Under-21 international.

Tuanzebe is said to have grown frustrated with his lack of first-team football and believes he deserves more ‘recognition’ for his efforts.

The former Aston Villa loanee spent the majority of the 2020/21 season playing second fiddle to Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof.

The injury-ravaged Eric Bailly, who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer played in the Europa League final, is also ahead of Tuanzebe in the pecking order.

But the Rochdale-raised defender turned in stellar displays in United‘s Champions League and Europa League clashes with Paris Saint-Germain and Granada respectively.

United chief Solskjaer was full of praise for Tuanzebe after his five-star performance against the Spaniards, saying: “Absolutely delighted for him because he’s had a difficult spell.

“Victor and Harry have done really well, Eric when he’s played, has played really well so Axel has played fourth fiddle, if you put it that way.”

The Norwegian added: “He’s been very patient, worked very hard.

“Tonight, I think him and Victor were our outstanding performers.

“They kept us from any real pressure.

“They defended whatever came against them and, towards the end, there were a couple of corners there and Axel headed the crosses away.

“I’m delighted for him.”

Tuanzebe joined United’s academy at the tender age of eight and quickly became a regular fixture in their youth squads.

And in 2014, the versatile defender led United’s youth side to Milk Cup glory.

Tuanzebe was handed his first-team debut in January 2017 by then-manager Jose Mourinho, coming on as a second-half sub in their 4-0 rout of Wigan Athletic.

He’s since gone on to make a further 37 appearances for the Old Trafford club.
